About her husband, John

John J. Mellencamp is a singer, musician, songwriter, painter, and actor by profession. 

He was born on October 7, 1951, in Seymour, Indiana, United States. He is well known for the genre of heartland rock. 

He has come up with different solo songs like ‘Hurts So Good”, “Jack & Diane,” “Crumblin’ Down,” and many more. 

Living a life with anxiety and panic attacks

John said in an interview that sometimes when he wakes up, he feels anxious, so he takes drugs specially made to take care of and help people like himself. 

He said there was a time in his early 20s when he was totally paralyzed, and in the late 80s, it jumped on him, which happened after his second divorce. 

John has been an enthusiastic smoker as he started smoking at the age of ten. He also had a habit of alcohol. 

He had a heart attack too due to such habits at the age of 42 in 1994 during a tour.

Initial days would be painful for writing songs

When John started writing songs during his childhood age, it was painful for him because he was a child, and he had never done it before, and sometimes he even felt not to write songs, but then after some period of time, he felt like writing them. 

So when he wrote a song about black lives and about the working poor named “Easy Targets,” he said he wasn’t thinking about those stuff, and he just wrote it inside five minutes. 

Gone through Spinal deformity.

Just after birth, John went through surgery for spina bifida, which is a birth defect that leaves an opening in the spinal column that can make the spinal cord extend outside the body and leave a growth. 

John was lucky because, in the 50s period of time, new surgical technology arrived, which was performed by Dr. Robert Heimburger to save the life of John
